Climate change vulnerability in Southern African cities

Climate change vulnerability in Southern African cities

It is refreshing to read a book focusing on a few case studies of African cities not usually under the climate change literature spotlight, such as Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg traditionally have been. Stimulating also is the volume’s explicit emphasis upon peri-urban areas, the areas in cities where urban and rural features and processes meet, and where there are mixed populations, important environmental services, and consumption of natural resources.
